Yeah, that flamethrower won't do much to help you survive in Alien: Isolation

In the days leading up to Sega's release of Alien: Isolation, it mocks us with the semi-question "#HowWillYouSurvive," because Twitter-speak is what appeals to the cool local teens. This video firmly suggests that a flamethr...

Review: Alien: Isolation
by Chris Carter

From the old school "20th Century Fox" opening to the first few seconds, Alien: Isolation wants you to know that it takes after the first film from the series it was based on. One alien, one spaceship, one chance at survival.

This is the game we should have gotten from Gearbox.

LA Cops brings mustaches and doughnuts to tactical shooters

Bringing a game that's early in development to a show like EGX is both a good idea and a scary one. You can get plenty of helpful feedback and some comments that aren't so helpful. "Yeah, we had this kid who was like eight ye...

Wizzro looks like a must-play character in Hyrule Warriors

As I've said in the past, one of my favorite things about Hyrule Warriors is how different every character is. This new video showing off Wizzro exemplifies that fact, as he mostly operates at a mid-range capacity with ...

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Ivory King photo
Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Ivory King
by Chris Carter

Dark Souls II was quite the ride. Although the game had its fair share of issues, I had a blast playing it, and a number of its zones now have a place in my list of all-time favorite Souls locations.

One of those areas includes the last piece of DLC, The Crown of the Ivory King, which brings back some of the powerful icy imagery from the Painted World of Ariamis.

Here's the Bloodborne alpha in action

Ah yes! If you weren't fortunate enough to go hands-on with Bloodborne at gamescom, PAX Prime, or Tokyo Game Show, this is the good stuff right here. It's footage ripped straight from the alpha. There are multiple videos her...

Matador is now Brigador, still a cool looking mech shooter

I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but al...

Shadow of Mordor Playthough - Here's a Graug-sized portion of gameplay photo
Shadow of Mordor Playthough - Here's a Graug-sized portion of gameplay
by Bill Zoeker

[Note: I am currently in process of rendering and uploading all of the videos to the playlist. If you run out and want more, be sure to check back soon.]

Max and I decided it would be a good idea to shoot a playthrough of the opening chunk of the new Tolkien-verse action game, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. As we got further into it, we realized that Shadow of Mordor is some of the most goddamn fun we've had in a game in a while. Above is the first video in our series. You can watch through the whole playlist if you want to see for yourself how badass this game is.

My favorite part of Hyrule Warriors is not at all what I was expecting

I'm only several hours into Hyrule Warriors and while there's already a lot to like here, I think I've figured out what my favorite part of the game is: a song. Specifically, "Zelda's Lullaby." It has been featured prominent...

Legend of Korra will have difficulty levels Platinum fans expect

This first "behind the scenes" video for Platinum's Legend of Korra game isn't great, but fans of Platinum's intense action fare might be happy to hear that there will be a high difficulty level just for them. Could've ...

Want to watch a season pass trailer for a game that hasn't released yet?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's doing mostly fine from the reviews that came out last week, but that doesn't mean that you will like it. How can you like a game if you haven't played it yet? You can't, plain and simple...

Max's five reasons Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor kicks ass
by Jordan Devore

Like Max, I didn't know what to make of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but taking a guarded approach has paid off -- the reviews are in and they're overwhelmingly positive. Nice surprise!

Still not sure I'll rush out to grab the game at launch on Tuesday -- I've got my hands full, as I'm sure many of you will shortly -- but it's much higher on my to-play list after this week.
